Apple's carrier partnerships in France are going under the microscope. An administrative watchdog called the DGCCRF, which operates in France's Finance Ministry, is investigating the clauses Apple enforces in its contracts with wireless carriers. According to Reuters, the body is specifically focusing on Apple's requirements related to sales volume, advertising, and commissions to a respective carrier's salespeople.
